ToCHI: User Interface Description Languages for Next Generation User Interfaces

Tuesday, April 13
2:30 PM - 4:00 PM

A Specification Paradigm for the Design and Implementation of Tangible User Interfaces
Orit Shaer, Wellesley College, USA
Robert J.K. Jacob, Tufts University, USA

This paper contributes a visual specification language for tangible interfaces, an XML-compliant language, and a proof-of-concept prototype that semi-automatically translates high-level specifications into concrete implementations.

ICOs: a Model-Based User Interface Description Technique for Interactive Systems Engineering
David Navarre, IHCS-IRIT, Université Paul Sabatier - Toulouse 3, France
Philippe Palanque, IHCS-IRIT, Université Paul Sabatier - Toulouse 3, France
Jean-Francois Ladry, IHCS-IRIT, Université Paul Sabatier - Toulouse 3, France
Eric Barboni, IHCS-IRIT, Université Paul Sabatier - Toulouse 3, France

This paper presents a notation for the specification and analysis of current and next generation interfaces and how the use of such notation improves reliability and usability of interactive systems.

MARIA: A Universal Language for Service-Oriented Applications in Ubiquitous Environments
Fabio Paternò, ISTI-CNR, Italy
Carmen Santoro, ISTI-CNR, Italy
Lucio Davide Spano, ISTI-CNR, Italy

We present a novel model-based XML-based language for interactive multi-device applications based on Web services. It can be exploited both in authoring environments and in dynamic generation of migratory interfaces

A Natural, Tiered and Executable UIDL for 3D User Interfaces Based On Concept-Oriented Design
Chadwick Wingrave, UCF, USA
Joseph J. LaViola Jr., UCF, USA
Doug A. Bowman, Virginia Tech, USA

Studied natural representations of 3D interface design and development. This resulted in a natural, tiered, executable model to address development complexity and improve reuse as shown through multiple evaluation approaches.
